Rockhoppers put on a rockin' show for the Kindergarteners. Every "penguin" got a chance to perform. Some tobogganed, some danced, some even sang a little song. All penguins loved getting into the act. Nothing like a paper bag puppet, a tipped table and applause for a perfect Friday afternoon. Last week we all made Emperor Penguins. Then we all wanted more than one kind of penguin puppet. So - our book buddies helped us make another puppet today. We each picked a favorite. The kids wanted all the details they knew - from pink feet to red eyes - on their penguins. This took some preparation and time (well spent). Next year I am going to buy black bags to make the puppet making a little simpler. Letting the penguins strut their stuff was a fantastic ending to a great unit of learning.
